Earlier this month, Chase launched its latest business credit card: the Ink Business Preferred Card. With the addition of the card to Chase's lineup, the issuer is no longer accepting new applications for its predecessor, the Ink Plus Business Card. Now, Million Mile Secrets shared that you must apply for the Preferred Card as a new applicant, rather than upgrading from a different Ink card (such as the Plus). However, in the future, it could become possible to change products from another Ink card to the Preferred Card. It's worth noting that based on reports, the Preferred Card does appear to be affected by Chase's 5/24 rule.

The new Preferred Card comes with a sign-up bonus of 80,000 points after you spend $5,000 in the first three months (the discontinued Plus Card, meanwhile, most recently offered a sign-up bonus of 60,000 points after the same minimum spend). You'll earn 3x points on the first $150,000 spent in combined purchases on travel, shipping, internet, cable and phone services and advertising purchases made with social media sites and search engines. In addition, you'll earn 1x points on all other purchases with no limit. The card comes with an annual fee of $95.

How we chose these cards

Our points-obsessed staff uses a plethora of credit cards on a daily basis. If anyone on our team wouldn’t recommend it to a friend or a family member, we wouldn’t recommend it on The Points Guy either. Our opinions are our own, and have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by our advertising partners.
